About DK Eyewitness Books: Flight
Take flight with this spectacular and informative guide to the fascinating world of aircraft.
Superb color photographs offer a unique exploration of the history of flight, as well as providing a close-up view of the many different kinds of aircraft in use today, from helicopters to hot-air balloons.
Find out what a Victorian steam-powered airplane looked like, what the first pilots wore, how wings provide lift, and what's inside a "black box". Discover how a plane lands and takes off, how a glider works, which plane could be carried on a car, what the buttons on a flight deck do, and much more.
Great for projects or just for fun, Eyewitness Flight will help you to learn everything you need to know about the history and science of flight.
